5 Short Poems.


Alone By The Ocean's Side.


Salt tanged breezes,
saline stained cheeks,
beauty and remorse collide.

In the inkwells
of the craters
that mar my face,
nightmares fester,
tides tremble
and men are moved
to unspeakable crimes.



Kit, Kit, hooray!

Her mom was just a squatter,
uninvited 'neath your home,
who gave birth to this kitten,
then left her there alone,
You took her in so kindly,
and now look what you've got,
a star for your crown in heaven,
and a pet named, "Diddly Squat.




The L of One!

Lonely is a


frozen dinner,
on the sun porch

in the rain,
It's a

Helen Keller phone,
deaf and blind to

your aching need,
sitting dumb

far too often.




Somewhere East Of Nothing Doing.


Between the gaping maw of a yawn,
and counting the number of stucco
points on the ceiling,
apathy sets in.
